Document Description
The City of Visalia is proposing to widen Shirk Road from two lanes to four lanes between a point approximately 750 feet north of the intersection of State Route 198 and the culvert at North Mill Creek, just north of School Avenue. The South Mill Creek will be extended ~330 feet north and east from its headwall at Hillsdale Avenue. Shirk Road will be widened, extending the existing road surface east to an existing sidewalk, curb, and gutter, and connecting that sidewalk to one on the north side of North Mill Creek. The new road surface will then be built on top of the newly extended culvert. The City plans to complete the Project in two stages: 1) Shirk Road will be widened in the existing right of way (ROW). 2)After a full 110-foot ROW is acquired the second state will include an island or raised median, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks along both northbound and southbound lanes.
